UNBOUND PROOF

UNBOUND PROOF

To assess the quality of your images and content before placing an order, we can produce an unbound proof copy of your manuscript. You will receive an unbound proof of your internal text, a copy of your cover art, a pre-flight report and a summary of the colour and black and white pages. The page summary, will give you an exact count of your black and white/colour page count. This service is available for all book sizes offered in our calculators. For covers which are outside of our standard sizes, we can arrange a digital proof only, to be sent to you for inspection.
